The Citroën Berlingo and Peugeot Partner are almost identical panel vans and leisure activity vehicles produced by the PSA Peugeot Citroën alliance since 1996. They were based on the Citroën ZX/Peugeot 306 estate floorpan and mechanicals. With their rectangular, box like cargo space and aerodynamic front, conceptually they can be considered the descendants of the Citroën 2CV panel van (AK400). As of September 2018 the Opel Combo and Vauxhall Combo will be identical to the Citröen and Peugeot Berlingo and Partner/Rifter.

Both the Berlingo and Partner have been produced in CNG and electric versions and with four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

The panel vans are named the Berlingo and Partner, while the leisure activity vehicles are known as the Berlingo Multispace and Partner Combi for the Citroën and Peugeot version respectively. In Italy, the first generation of the Partner was known as the Peugeot Ranch.

The Berlingo/Partner was officially launched in July 1996.[4]

When the Berlingo was first shown at the Mondial de l'Automobile (Paris Motor Show) in 1996, a set of three concept cars was also presented:

  • Berlingo Coupé de Plage
  • Berlingo Berline Bulle
  • Berlingo Grand Large

The Berline Bulle concept was a roomy small car, that could be considered as a precursor for the C3. Only one of these concepts was actually developed, the Grand Large version, which was developed into the Multispace and Combi people carriers/leisure vans.


A revised version, featuring a redesigned interior and front end, was released in December 2002 (Berlingo I / Partner I).

During 2004, there was a minor facelift, including changes to the grille and light clusters


The vans were designed to be powered by petrol, diesel, electric, or CNG.

Two different models replaced the first generation of the Berlingo in 2008. The smaller, known as the Citroën Nemo,[6] was developed in cooperation with Fiat and Tofaş. Based on the Fiat Grande Punto platform, it is built in Turkey and is also marketed as the Peugeot Bipper and Fiat Fiorino. The Peugeot and Citroën are almost identical; the Fiorino also has a different, Fiat made, diesel engine. The Nemo is intended to be cheaper and smaller than the original Berlingo.

The Berlingo II, styled by Gilles Vidal, is based on PSA's Platform 2 (like the Citroën C4) and therefore is slightly larger, and considerably more expensive than its predecessor.[citation needed] The engine range is similar to other current models of the PSA Group.

The Berlingo and Partner were officially unveiled in January 2008, with the Berlingo launched first, in the European market, in April 2008,[4] followed by the Partner in May 2008.[4] Mexico still sells this generation alongside the original Partner, as do a few other countries, as the Grand Raid and Partner Origin.[citation needed]

An electric version has been available since 2013.[5] In March 2017, a five seater Citroen E-Berlingo Multispace was announced.[7]
